KINGDOM AGE FROM FUNZIO CHALLENGES GOOGLE+ GAMERS TO LIVE BY THE SWORD

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 1, 2012 – Funzio, the leading developer of midcore games for social and mobile platforms, announced that its newest game, Kingdom Age, is today debuting exclusively on Google+, as well as the Chrome Web Store.

“Google+ is adding millions of new members to their social network and it’s key for our future growth as an entertainment company to be part of the developing gaming scene on this vital new social platform,” said Kenneth Chiu, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, Funzio. “As a developer, we’ve also found it easy to work with Google; they’ve listened to our feedback and have been very collaborative on Kingdom Age. With this successful launch on Google+ and the Chrome Web Store, as well as our new projects beginning to arrive on Android, Funzio has again proven our multiplatform strategy.”

"Kingdom Age marks the fifth exclusive game to launch on Google+,” said Punit Soni, Lead for Google+ Games. “We're thrilled to see that our trusted partners, such as Funzio, are launching their games exclusively on the platform demonstrating their long term commitment to Google+ games. The Kingdom Age graphics are stunning, and the story is very action oriented and adventurous. We think our users will really enjoy playing Kingdom Age."

Kingdom Age pays homage to the classic loot lusting action-RPGs, reborn as an accessible social multiplayer game with empire-building aspects.  Players construct their own kingdoms, hack-and-slash monsters in dungeons and collect rare weapons and artifacts.  Kingdom Age brings social games one step closer to classic role-playing games, delivering the flavor of proven fantasy hits while adapting and innovating on gameplay designs to deliver the ideal experience for social platforms.  Much like Funzio’s first two games, Crime City and Modern War, Kingdom Age features a layered game design in which players can develop skills during solo play while building up and training troops to wage magical warfare against rivals in their social graph.
